We’re pleased to introduce the first album in a new series, The Songwriters Cycle! For this series we’re bringing together local singer/songwriters and recording their songs and stories, giving them a channel to direct their message to new listeners.
Vol. 1 features a number of songs from three different local artists in the Peterborough area;
Sarah Tohnin – A Peterborough-born wanderer, Sarah Tohnin has finally returned home. Despite being drawn to music at an early age, Sarah lived as a visual artist until an itch to create a different kind of art began to emerge five years ago. In her time away from Peterborough, Sarah learned the ukulele and the guitar and has drawn inspiration from Connor Oberst, Benjamin Todd of “Lost Dog Street Band,” and Amigo the Devil.
Husky Jeans – To sum it up in the artists own words: “Just trying to be Dallas Green”
Maylen – Maylen (Scott M. Somerville) is a jammin community musician singing about peace, love, nature, and interconnectedness. Inspired by the 60s folk movement and motivated by the times we find ourselves in now.
Physical copies of the album are available for sale in the Okzygen webstore, digital streaming will be made available shortly!
Expect to hear more from these artists soon!
